About the IND

The IND is located in the magnificent, new Sandler Neurosciences Center on the Mission Bay campus of the University of California San Francisco. Here, a cohesive interactive group concentrates on research and drug discovery in the neurodegenerative diseases. Over the past few years, there has been a remarkable and expanding consensus that many—if not all—neurodegenerative diseases are due to the accumulation of prions.
